Syncopating Sue (1926) -- Lost Silent ?
3 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Employed as a pianist in a Broadway music shop, Susan Adams ( Corinne Griffith ) entertains ambitions for a stage career. Famous theatrical producer and successful star-maker, Arthur Bennett, ( Rockliffe Fellowes ) summons her to his office to complain about her noisy piano below him, and she haughtily responds that she will stop if he gives her a chance on the stage. Susan mistakes Eddie Murphy ( Tom Moore ), recently arrived in town, for a flirtatious cad, until she finds him living in her boardinghouse, and their friendship grows when she learns he is a friend of saxophonist, Joe Horn ( Lee Moran ). Eddie, who plays drums in a cabaret, is disillusioned at seeing Susan with Bennett. When Bennett seeks to ensnare Susan's sister, Marge ( Joyce Compton ), Susan proves her acting abilities at his apartment; but learning that Eddie has left for Europe, she confesses her love for him, and they are happily united.

This 1926 romance was based on the play Syncopating Sue by Reginald Butler Goode. The film was produced by Corinne Griffith Productions and distributed by First National Pictures. Starring beautiful actress Corinne Griffith, it is now listed as a lost silent film.
